I smell appropriation…

This is our worry too. This is why none of the stories (unless they are our own experiences) are written by the editors of this site. We also don’t make any profitfrom running this website.

We also don’t act as authorities on any of the stories/topics. This is why we generally don’t respond to comments on our site – we are fully aware that although the story is posted on our site, we are not part of the community that the story is about. Each story is a safe space for that community, and often it’s not our place to speak.

Our hope is that Empathize This can be another avenue for marginalized people to speak out. At the same time, we hope it shows that all the issues are incredibly complex, and can’t be captured neatly in any single story.
